My IBM Career


I've sometimes thought I should write a book about my career with IBM. I have lots of experiences that made an impact on me. Some funny, some pathetic. Anyway, I've just written some of the more memorable stuff down.

December 17, 2010

I received the "Outstanding Technical Specialist for 2010" award in October. I received the plaque today and a Vivitar digital video recorder. I took the photo with the camera - its not much. Actually, its pretty crappy. I had a number of different items to choose from for the gift. I didn't realize how crummy this camera would be or I could have chosen something else. My bad.

Regarding the award, I've been saying that after 33 years you would expect me to finally have the job figured out.
